The Twilight Zone

Went out early this morning to take a photo of the city at sunrise. Technically it was before sunrise, in the twilight period. Did you know there is an astronomical twilight, a nautical twilight and a civil twilight, in that order, before sunrise? The photo was taken during the nautical twilight period.

Will need to practice a lot more and will have to try this again when there are some clouds in the sky for a different light effect. At the top of the picture, just off centre, is a tiny “star”. That’s Venus!

Not sure what provided more motivation for the twilight adventure, getting out to learn how to use the camera or getting a freshly made Swiss chocolate croissant afterwards 🙂
